LAPLACE - Authorities have arrested a 27-year-old man identified as a suspect in the weekend death of a teenage girl in LaPlace.

The St. John Parish Sheriff's Office says U.S. Marshals captured Earnest Joseph III Wednesday afternoon in Gulfport, Miss., shortly after St. John Sheriff Wayne Jones announced a warrant for his arrest.

The warrant accuses him of murder of 15-year-old Taylor Adams. Her mother found her badly beaten body early Sunday in the girl's bedroom at their home in LaPlace.
